I have used calabash and appium both for automation. Appium has more advantages than calabash.

Advantages of Appium over Calabash:
1. You can write your code in multiple language like Java,Python, C#, php etc. However, Calabash restrict to use RUBY only.

  1. Appium comes with many predefined methods such as OpenNotification(), StartActivity(), InstallApp etc. Calabash does not provide such predefined methods.

  2. Appium set up is very easy as compared to Calabash.

  3. In calabash, it installs the app on the device every time you run the test. However, In appium you have a feature where in you don’t need to install the app every time. It works with previously installed app on the device.

  4. Appium works with both native and hybrid app.

There are many advantages of appium. I hope this helps.
